"With 10% Merlot, this is a structured red that's built by broad tannins but approachable in its youth. Earthy peat, dried herb, cedar and cigar box play against a depth of dark cherry, cassis and plum, while fresh acidity permeates beneath, making for a cohesive package."
The varietal Cabernet Sauvignon is the core of the Larkmead portfolio and is also the greatest opportunity to highlight the diversity of the estate. Sourced from deeper, richer soil profiles (Pleasanton loam series) from both A and C block, this wine has the body weight of a “baby Solari.” Created through blending the fruit from young and old vines, this wine is made in the image of Solari, but a human can’t replicate what Mother Nature creates - and that is the difference between the estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Solari.
Our 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is one of our favorite bottlings to date. Accentuated with 10% Merlot, this wine is classic Larkmead – aromas of purple flowers, red cherries, cedar, warm gravel and graphite fill the glass. With time, the nose on this wine continues to evolve, revealing plum, leather and tobacco accents.
